1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Hand stitching a book's headband on: October 25, 2010 06:18:05 AM
Hey all you crafties out there!  I have been searching high and low and I cannot find a video for hand stitching a book headband.  Anybody know of a good video or can just give me good written advice?  Thanks!

OH, sorry , I got some parchment at Hobby Lobby but buying in bulk, say, from Staples or Zepher, is cheaper.  I also found an online site, Paperworks.com, that has some good prices and a great range of inventory, though the shipping cost is a bit much.   There are some really good teaching vidoes on YouTube.com, but I could not find one for making the headband.  What about watercolor art paper for your tea dying?

Hey, recently I've been trying to learn all about book binding and I have finished one book and completed 5 more bookblocks.  I have to say I'm partial to parchment paper, but the block I made out of grey computer printer paper turned out just fine too, I think.  I bet you could use just about anything that you would find acceptable to write on for your purpose.  I also have a nice journal (bought by me not made) with "laid" paper in it that I like very much.  I tend to be a supplies snob, so I have to say parchment and laid are my favorite, but any cotton or linen blend paper is nice too I think, and printer paper would also do.  I am looking for a video on hand making a "book headband" if you know of one.  I'm about to make a post of my own to try to find out.  Thanks! - Sarah

This is great!  I love the shaping and even the color.  No need to dye it, but I bet plain old Rit dye wold do the trick; I imagine the yellow color would just blend in with the new dye, not just be totally covered up.  I know what you mean about the cast off being too tight.  I usually cast off with needles at least 2 sizes larger than I used to knit the garment.

Thanks for providing so much insight into your process!  I love all the photos and details.  Your final result is just amazing!  So fun - I wish I had your patience.

45 degree angle! Brilliant!  Did you convert from photo to stitch pattern yourself?

Ya know, before I saw it on you, I would have said the sides needed to be taken in, but it looks really pretty like flower petals when you're wearing it - I stopped thinking it was an accident until I read through all your post.  Sometimes mistakes or unintentional deviations from your imagined outcome are serendipitous.

This is totally awesome!  I want one so bad!  I'm going to have to learn needle felting so I can make my own feeble attempt at this masterpiece.

10  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Re: hi, am new & lost on craftsters & need to know a few things :) on: April 04, 2010 09:27:13 PM
Hey, I'm also new here and having a bit of trouble figuring things out myself.  One thing that has helped me so far is going to "My Crafster" then "My Profile" then "Look and Layout Preferences" on the left hand column and changing "Use quick reply on topic display" to "show, on by default".  That makes it a lot easier to reply to posts and make yourself heard.  As far as making your own post, I'm still not totally clear on that but I'm starting to think that maybe you start by clicking "new topic" up at the top right of a forum just like posting your introduction.  I also read the help topics but there doesn't seem to be any really specific information on how to go about doing things.
